It’s hard to categorize Funky Monkey Wine Company. The original Funky Monkey in the Mills 50 district is a small, intimate space with dark wood floors and an overstuffed attic kind of décor. The menu combines Modern American with superb sushi and seafood and a terrific wine list. Standards include ostrich with a sauce made from blackberries, blueberries, pears, brandy, butter and shallots that’s been reduced to near-marmalade consistency; bacon-wrapped pork tenderloin with soy-ginger glaze; and drunken jumbo scallops served with Maine lobster mashed potatoes. Then there are the sushi rolls. The Fire Monkey combines an Ahi tuna and cucumber filling with a dusting of jalapeno-and habanero-soaked masago (smelt fish eggs).
